Denkmäler! – Denkmäler? Zu Phänomen und Begriff des Denkmals und seinen kulturpolitischen Kontexten
DENKMAELER! - DENKMAELER? THE PHENOMENON, THE TERM AND THE CHANGING CULTURAL AND HISTORICAL CONTEXT
Languages of publication
The present article that was originally conceived as an inaugural lecture on the occasion of opening the exhibition 'Klingende Denkmaeler: Musikwissenschaftliche Gesamtausgaben in Deutschland' in November 2006 at the Robert Schumann Hochschule Duesseldorf deals with the phenomenon and notion of 'heritage' (or 'art heritage') and its cultural-political contexts. It also stresses the fact that culture and politics have always been closely bound together. Only if one is aware of these close relations, does it seems possible to guarantee a contemporary cultural-political status for musical heritage as cultural heritage of the past as well as their appropriate reception and appreciation.
